Grilled Mango-Glazed Ham Recipe

Grilled Mango-Glazed Ham Recipe

I'm always looking for new ways to prepare ham...but many of my cookbooks have the same old tried-and-true glazes," say Sandy Lewis from Appleton, Wisconsin. "When I tried this one, I knew I had hit the jackpot!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + Grill: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped jalapeno pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 medium ripe mango or 2 medium ripe peaches, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1 bone-in fully cooked lean ham steak (about 2 pounds)
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, jalapeno and ginger. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until glaze is thick and caramelized. Strain and cool. Place mango in a food processor or blender; cover and process until smooth. Stir into glaze; set aside.
  • 2. Sprinkle both sides of ham steak with pepper. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 10 minutes on each side or until heated through. Brush both sides of ham with mango glaze; grill 5 minutes longer. Serve ham with remaining glaze. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
